Heady and trippy, “Limitless” mixes old school thriller (“The Manchurian Candidate,” “Charly”), with hyper CGI stylization (“Fight Club,” “The Matrix,” “Inception”) with uneven but mostly positive results.

The audio/visual quality is superb but the seemingly tacked-on extras make this title a title that only Cooper fans will likely feel compelled to own.
